January 2010

2010. At last. A fresh start.

Rahil began the year by attending a sound and light show at Red Fort on New Year's Day night. Like most everyone else, he slept through it. Dad was away on work for a week, but after that, on the 10th, Rahil went to Antara Shah's birthday party.

For Mom's birthday on the 14th, Rahil took her (and Dad) to Goa. Highlights included trips to the beach, jamming with restaurant musicians, playing with his friend Maya, swimming in the hotel's rooftop pool, looking through a telescope for the first time, visiting Old Goa, and flying a kite for the first time. See gallery below for photographs.

Rahil's Nana visited toward the end of the month. The month closed with Rahil's first trip to an amusement park -- World of Wonder, in Noida.
